Favorite Pasta Alla Vodka with lighter sauce. Instead of heavy cream I used low-fat healthy alfredo sauce. A splash of vodka at the end of cooking heightens the flavor of the tomatoes.
- 1/2 pound Pasta
- 2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
- 1 small onion, finely chopped
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- 1/2 cup Vodka
- 1 cup (8 oz) tomato puree
- 1/2 cup Healthy Alfredo Sauce*
- a pinch red pepper flakes
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- black pepper to taste
- 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
Cook pasta al dente, according to package directions. Drain.
In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add chopped onions and garlic and saute for about 2 minutes.
Pour in vodka and cook for 3 more minutes.
Add in tomato puree and healthy alfredo sauce, red pepper flakes, salt and pepper. Simmer for about 1 minute.
Add cooked pasta and Parmesan cheese to the sauce. Tossing to combine and serve immediately.
